RAGE SITE IS LIVE. COME GET YO GAMES.

RAGE (Really Amateur Game Expo) is, bar none, the greatest online convention in the history of the internet.


What is RAGE?


RAGE is a kind of, but not really, game jam, where creators can compete to produce the worst, goofiest fan game possible using whatever tools at their disposal. RAGE has always prided itself in having some of the worst games to ever exist, and we plan on continuing that tradition again this year.


Are there like, rules or something?


You mean guidelines?


Yeah, Guidelines.

• Games need to stick to the theme, this is the most important requirement to note.
• Submissions need to be in by 11:59 pm CST on Friday, January 22nd.
• Send all RAGE submissions to [email protected]; submissions before January 17th will not be accepted.
• Games should really only be 5 – 10 minutes long. We're not looking for an epic here.
• Feel free to use any engine/platform/program you like, just make sure it'll run on modern day systems!
• If you don't have something on hand, there's trials of several commonly used programs, as well as free versions. Less experience might even help you here!
• Have fun with it! Sure you're shooting for bad, but you're wanting to make funny bad, like The Room or Birdemic of video games. (In other words, you're aiming for humor, not just garbage.)


We announced the theme of the game on January 17th. You have a short time to create and submit your game between there, so get ready to get crackin’! In the past, RAGE has been entirely for bragging rights (if you're into that sort of thing) and making comical abominations. That's all good and fun, but this year, we're announcing a grand prize for RAGE's first place winner:

A $50 Amazon Gift Card*!

We'll be holding a livestream where we'll play through every RAGE submission. Shortly thereafter, the RAGE site will go live so you too can witness the whiteness, with the RAGE winner announced on January 30th.
Brush up on your game making skills… or don't! Either way, RAGE is back!

UPDATE: January 17th:
YOUR 2016 RAGE theme is...

SONIC BOOM!

Sports tape, wrong colored body parts, redesigns, anything related to Sonic Boom!

Hop to it! 22nd will be here fast!

RAGE Livestream will be this Saturday, January 23rd at 8:30pm CST on Twitch showcasing all the RAGE entries! Hope to see you there!

*Or your country's equavilent of $50USD, should the winner be outside of the U.S.

'Sonic & the Attack of the Egg Shaped Aliens' from 2007 is the best RAGE game of all time!
I entered the same year with 'Sonic The Last Strike', a game mostly made in early 2003 (when I was 12). The title screen music was a MIDI version of the Doctor Who theme and the game crashed randomly :v:

Personally I'm fond of "Vector Eats Food", though more for its name than anything else

Hum, I'll probably have a game in my mind for this expo which I can make quickly and will be more focused on cheapness and funniness than badness. Plus this project will serve for training to my new engine for a more ambitious game.

Commander Squiggles the HedgePossum, Sonic and Mewthree vs the Egg-Shaped Aliens, and GROWABEARD + it's sequel must live on forever.

Also I might have a game in time for that. Get ready.

You have until Friday, and going by the example, even something that's nothing but a folder of JPEGs counts. You can probably find time.

I'm already 37% done with my entry? If you take longer than a few days you're doing it wrong

RAGE entries are supposed to be suckish but this is an opportunity to rewrite and improve major parts of my engine, while adding crap menus and stolen Boom art to it. What could go wrong?
